Coca Cola Ad from 1886

John Pemberton began advertising his new Coca Cola Product soon after he created it. This image depicts an early advertisement from 1886.

Pemberton was really on to something when he invented Coca Cola. He sold the rights to his secret formula to Asa Candler from the sum of $2,300 (or thereabouts). When Candler died, 38 years later, he was worth around $50 million.
